The dissolution of the Hatch Mott MacDonald joint venture has been completed – with Mott MacDonald in the US taking on more than 2,000 people as a result.
It was announced last year that the partnership – created in 1995 – would split into two, with the Canadian business becoming part of Hatch, and the US company part of Mott MacDonald.
More than 60 US offices have been rebranded as Mott MacDonald.
“We have substantially increased our ability to help clients tackle challenges resulting from ageing infrastructure, population growth, water scarcity, energy security and the impact of climate change,” said Mott MacDonald chairman Keith Howells.
“Renewing roads, bridges, airports, railways and water systems is vital to keeping North America economically competitive but realising large-scale infrastructure projects requires innovative approaches to finance, procurement and engineering.
”With our additional staff and offices we are in a stronger position than ever before to work in partnership with our clients to help them address these issues and provide real, everyday improvements to the lives of North Americans.”
